Background

In its core motorsports business, Honda Mobilityland is promoting the reduction of greenhouse gases from events and aims to become carbon neutral by 2030. To this end, Honda Mobilityland has been focusing on the introduction of electronic ticketing to improve operational efficiency, improve customer convenience, enhance marketing through the use of data, and reduce environmental impact.

Fujitsu worked carefully with Honda Mobilityland on a DX project with these objectives in mind, delivering a new digital ticket platform that enables venue operators the ability to implement versatile ticket business strategy while streamlining the customer experience.

- The platform further offers customers new experiences from the time of ticket purchase including a seat recommendation/selection screen based on customers purchase record, and a preview of their view from the different seats; the system will further introduce an official system for ticket resales, additional purchases, changes, and upgrades to adjacent seats after purchase

3. Contributes to reduction of environmental impact by going paperless
